From the same roll as the Ballard post a few days ago, these photos show how Kodak’s Portra 400 renders nature’s greens and reds.
Fast becoming my favorite camera, the Rollei 35 S is perfect for walking around. The lens is tack sharp when you get the zone focus right. It feels like a small brick.
Portra is a classic Kodak Film. I’ve shot the 160 and the 800. I think the 400 is really the sweet spot.
Here’s a few samples from mid September.
Spent the first weekend of September at a camp. Took the AE-1, the Rollei 35 s, and my Fuji x100f.
These photos were with the Canon AE-1 with the 100mm lens. I was using Kodak Portra 400. The photos (and scans) show the depth that film provides. These photos could not be done on a digital camera.
The first rolls from my Sicily trip came back from Moonphoto today.
All shot with my Canon AE-1 Program. I used a 20 mm and a 100 mm lenses
Not unlike the anticipation of picking up prints from the Kodak photo booth, I’m always happy when the scans come back from Moonphoto. I’m also always surprised by the quality and depth of film.
These shots come from the Rollei 35 S. The film is Kodak Portra 400. A much better film, in my opinion, than the Portra 800.
